Instability with long uptime

I keep my PC on for extended periods of time and at around 2 weeks various graphics-related functions stop working.

 

  • Windows screen clipping via win+shift+s
  • Alt-tabbing (window loses focus, but there is no popup on the main screen with previews and a different window is not brought into the foreground)
  • Arc control crashes on startup
  • Games fail to start, some silently, but for example Factorio says "failed to allocate swap chain" and PoE has "Failed to create device for adapter: Intel(R) Arc(TM) A770 Graphics. Error code: -2147024882" in the log

The games suggest out of vram problem, but according to windows task manager only 1Gig out of 16 on the card is used. And it's not lack of regular ram (64Gig system, half is sitting unused). Restarting explorer.exe helps but only for a while.

I will probably not be able to gather more data for 2 week until it starts happening again.

ReBAR is on

It works for about two weeks after a boot, then it starts to have problems

I don't think I can show anything on video what  I can't describe via text (how do you record alt-tab window not showing lol)

I restarted and will run these tools when the problems return

Hello Demiu, 



In order to continue further, please provide the following:


1. Run the Intel® System Support Utility (Intel® SSU) to gather more details about the system.  

2. Did you try with a different video card (3rd party or iGfx)?



If I do not get a reply from you, I will proceed to close this thread.

Hi, sorry for long times between replies, but as I said it happens around 2 weeks of uptime and usually I need to continue what I was doing an just reboot.

 

I've attached the logs from SSU
